Remember

Fall Series!

September 10-December 17. Throughout the Scriptures, God urges us to remember... but remember what? Life’s tensions can cause painful memories to rush in and we soon forget Jesus, his love, his ways, and his purposes. We lose sight, get side-tracked, stuck, and sometimes feel paralyzed with how to move forward in life. What we remember matters and profoundly influences our lives. Join us we explore living in God-centered remembrance that leads us to a life filled with hope, joy, faith, freedom, power and love.

CHILDREN’S CHRISTMAS CHOIR

Sunday, December 17. The children and youth will be singing Christmas songs next weekend during worship. Please check them in and have them sit with you as usual during worship, and their teachers will call them onstage when it’s their turn! They have been working hard and are very excited to share their voices! After they are done singing their portion, they will go back and sit with you, and we will dismiss all of them to class when all of them are done singing.
